    2006 Bighit1 question.(easyone)

    What will my rear suspension do when I move the shock from the slack hole to the steep hole?
    I'm not sure and my booklet tells me nothing. any help is awesome.
    THanks.

    It doesn't change the suspension in any way, only effects the geometry.

    Cool. I think the slack setting sounds better for steep stuff. it makes the head tube at 61ish deg. and not 63ish deg with the steep setting.
    Thanks Red5

    Actuallly, it makes the headtube settings 66 slack/ 68 steep and the seattube 61 slack / 63 steep.
